Gene Brame Hospitalized
Mark Turkel and Gene Brame
According to pressroom manager John Walker,
Gene Brame suffered a massive heart attack while headed to work at the Los Angeles Times Olympic Pressroom last night. Gene was near the 5 and 10 Freeways when he left the freeway, and attempted to call 911 before losing consciousness.
Another motorist stopped to render aid, and called paramedics. Gene was transported to White Memorial Hospital. His wife and daughters are at his side.
Gene works as a pressroom supervisor and is well liked by his colleagues, so it's no surprise everyone is very saddened with this news.
